Previous methods for calculating power loss in litz-wire windings usually assume very fine strands such that the diameter of strands is much smaller than skin depth. In this paper, we present a method for calculating proximity-effect loss in litz-wire windings. This method uses an equivalent complex permeability model of the winding to describe the proximity effect. We first obtain a permeability model for litz-wire bundles, then use homogenization techniques to find the average permeability of… Expand

Analytical model for effects of twisting on litz-wire losses
Litz wire uses complex twisting to balance currents between strands. Most models assume that the twisting works perfectly to accomplish this balancing, and thus are not helpful in choosing theExpand
Calculation of ohmic losses in litz wires by coupling analytical and numerical methods
Up to now, litz wires with many (several hundreds) strands are simplified in complex systems such as transformers or coils to make simulations feasible. However, frequency dependent losses of litzExpand
